I get monster migraines from computer or TV screens, what can I do?
I've had huge migraines for a little over a week now, and I've figured out it's from computer screens and TV. I'm on the computer for at least 2 hrs a day at school, one for my research project and one when I'm a library aide. What can I do to prevent the monsters from invading my life? When I type I change the background to black and the font to gray, and it seems to help a little.

It's a migraine, I get nauseous, dizzy, and just want to go to sleep. It's usually around my right temples and my upper right forehead. I don't need glasses, I got a check up over the summer.

blink a lot when your using the computer
the screens hurt my eyes too
and if its really big take a painkiller

hope that helps :]

Sick Of The World Today
Wear sunglasses while on the computer or watchin t.v. Its what I do, I get migraines too.

sit further back, dont lean in to the screen, and take breaks...also make sure you are looking down at it some instead of straight at it or up.

try usin a pain Reliever lotion. just apply it on ur forehead and the lotion attrcts heat. it makes ur head feel reely good. the lotion is called "Vicks". I think u can get it at pharmacy's. As for stopping the migraines, u probably have to stop ur computer use for a while.

talk to your teacher about it and maybe you can work something out where you don't need to use the computer and go old fashion with reading and writing

When I was pregnant that used to happen to me. My eyes were straining b/c of the looking at the screen. I went to the eye doctor and she prescribed glasses that helped. I changed the font at home to shades of blue also.

i get migraines too.. they most likely not caused by the computer or tv screen, those just alwaysss make them worse. If you absolutely need to be on the computer, try wearing sunglasses. i know it sounds a little funny but it helps. changing the background color helps a little too, you're right. bright lights are probably the worst thing for the headaches.
are you sure it's a migraine?
if it is, it's usually in one particular spot on one side of your head. it could be caused by stress, your period, or a number of different things. You might want to call a doctor if they continue.. i've resulted in a perscription migraine headache medicine.

You may need glasses.

Get your eyes check and talk to the eye doctor about it.

I did and they gave me glasses a VERY light pink tint.....no headaches from the lights at my office since!

let a doctor know and get something to prevent the migraine because it will have very negative effects on your blood pressure as well as other things.

go get your eyes checked sounds like you maybe straining them or try moving the screen closer or further way i would do the eyes first though

Light sensitivity is a common migraine trigger. It is not eye strain. I suffer this too and have found that for computer-work and TV watching it helps to dim the lights in the room and to reduce the contrast and brightness on the computer monitor. Also, take breaks and avert you eyes as a matter of habit. At all costs to do not watch any film with rapidly changing images - which for me means skipping some TV shows completely and looking immediately away from any flashing ads that come up on my PC. Taking pain killers daily is a bad idea - you will quickly cause rebound migraines if you take meds more than 3-4 times a week.

There are coping and avoidance strategies, no cures, for chronic migraines. Good luck.

I think you may need glasses (or stronger glasses if you already have them)
See your eye doctor and tell him about this. If indeed, you need glasses, and the migraines go away while wearing them...then..CASE SOLVED! That was the case with me. Glasses did wonders for me.
If not, you could be developing a brain tumor, or soemthing of that sort. SO SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION IMMEDIATLY!
I hope its nothing serious, best of luck.

Apart from all the quite interesting ideas and suggestions already given, you should remember that some people simply cannot look at TV, computer, or other shimmering views (such as the surface of the ocean) without triggering a headache or migraine.

For such people, glasses, computer screens, taking breaks, etc. will not really help.

Try Apple Cider Vinegar and water, or stop watching TV and using the computer. If this persists you may want to talk to specialist, you may need vision correction. Or you may have a you are too close to the monitor. Personally, I think you need more water, and maybe some vinegar. Oh, acupuncture works well also.

Time for glasses. Seriously.

Sit further back and adjust the brightness to the screen make sure that its not too bright. Also adjust the font size like you can change the percentage at which you are viewing webpages and documents so that you dont strain your eyes as bad. I would also suggest to see the optometrist/eye doctor but I think you're just suffering from prolonged use of the computer. Also take a break when you're hurting close your eyes or sit in darkness if possible to rest your eyes.

Get a perscription medication for it. I get those all the time.
Try to cut down on your computer and/or TV as much as possible (boring i know, but it helps)
See a docter.

First of all i would recommend an opticians appointment. From that point they can steer you in the right direction :)

go outside get some fresh air have a picinic with your friendsand enjoy the day.

The Authority
Start smoking weed.

Stay away from the screens as long as possible. Give yourself breaks. I think they make a screen cover for monitors. I get headaches as well. Its no fun when there is a dead line.


Use good screen/monitor.

Alternate systems of medicine can only help you.

There is no medicine for H/A OR MIGRAINE. Not only these but for RA, OA, Back ache and almost all painful diseases. Hence they become chronic.

Acidity, WORRY, sadness, excessive wind, cold , heat, sour food and sinusitis, constipation, intestinal inflammation; drug side effects, stress, bad smell, TV & COMPUTER SOMETIMES,
Blockage in the flow of Vital Energy, BODY CONSTITUTION etc are their causes. None of them can be treated with medicine. Our 100% success in treating migraine &H/A confirms it.

Acupuncture is the best treatment.
I can treat it with naturopathy and YOG, but how can you manage pl see.

Pain killers don't treat the pain but we loose the sense of pain for some time; in that duration our body itself treats sometime and credit goes to meds.
The useless drugs have tremendous power of side effects like liver/kidney failures, ulcer, inflammation of intestines and lot more.

Avoid late sleeping if possible; worry, spicy foods, sour fruits, stale bakery foods, SMOKING and alcohole.
Sweet foods, COCOANUT WATER,sweet fruits, milk, rice, SPROUTS, SALADS and good sleep will help if cough is not there.

But you try one herbal remedy- two drops of drumstick leaves' juice in opposite nostril if one side pains and both nostrils if full H/A will give you rescue. Betel leaf helps but it is very strong.

If it is acute pl search a painful point 3-6 mm behind your thumb nail and press it, H/A will disappear within 30 seconds.

For forehead pain the points are in front of nails on the finger tips or 3-7 mm below.

It may disappear naturally too.

Photophobia happens for me when I spend too much time on the screen for work and school. I learned that taking Excedrin too much is not good. It's about taking time away from the screen even if it's to take a dump or go for a walk or eat something. Let's your eyes rest or it feel like someone is extracting your eyeball without pain med. Another way to get lightly tinted clear glass to wear; it's kind of like staring directly into the sun. Also, I got a computer screen that kind of limits the brightness into my eyes. Hope this is helpful.

Try and see if they will purchase a screen difuser for you, these are also called glare guards. They help to reduce the amount of light that is actually projected from the screen. These will help with the migraines. Also when watching TV, try and have a light on in the same room so that the TV is not the only light source.

there is this screens you put on top of the monitor and that helps alot... maybe you need to go to the eye doctor..

i do too. i take Tylenol and get off the puter for a bit... dont hurt ur eyes!! u will regret it

Do you wear glasses?? If not, it may be something as simple as that. I found I was going home feeling sick & with headaches but hadn't had my eyes checked for years - now I wear glasses!!!

try adding Magnesium to your diet by food first and supplements second. every time I get a headache I'll eat a banana and it seems to help.

i would suggest using a screen and see your GP or an optician and try to cut down a bit on the time using your computer and TV

That amount of exposure should not really create this type of a problem, but here are things that you can do. First, make sure that your eyes have been checked recently. Eye strain can cause many problems, including migraines. Sit far enough back that you are not hunched over staring at the screen. Don't stay at the machine for more than 15 - 20 minutes at a time without taking a break, if only to get out of the chair and walk around the desk once.

In the meantime, you really should check with a neurologist for other possible causes, including food allergies, sinus issues (infected sinuses are great for causing migraines), hormonal issues, etc.
